Fresh DEUS content: Daniel Cockburn and the workshop results on the urban screens

Cockburn still You Are Here

 

Much to our excitement, we present a new delivery to the Digital Experiments on Urban Screens (DEUS), hosted by DROPSTUFF.nl and CASZuidas. From today onwards, you can observe the one minute video works that were made during a workshop by Canadian artist Daniel Cockburn as well as a new selection of surprising video works by international artists.
All the more reason to look up, and take some time to watch the new clips in The Hague Central Station, Amsterdam Zuid WTC Station and Eindhoven Central Station.

Impakt WORKS gladly hosted Daniel Cokburn as artist in residence in November and December last year, during which he was not only a regular attendant to the Impakt Festival Panorama events where his work was screened, but also a great guide for the participants of the workshop Scriptwriting in which the one minute-entries were made, to the end of screening them on the DROPSTUFF.nl and CASZuidas urban screens.

During Impakt Festival 2011, a few Panorama screening programs were dedicated to Cockburn’s past work, as well as his applauded  first feature film You Are Here. As an artist in residence, Cockburn simultaneously worked on a one minute video piece “My Godfather”, in which a narrator reminisces beyond the grave about an old piece of film history, which everybody remembers, but nobody knows about.

Anyone who has heard Cockburn speak in public, will realize that witnessing the artist-talk – or rather, an anti-artist talk as Daniel put it – is both insightful and tremendously humourous. Leaning more towards performance than a conventional lecture, Cockburn traced the course of his artistic work at his sincere, own expense. Watch the report of All the mistakes I’ve Made here. A blog report was written about this three day workshop and the closing event, to give you an impression of the experience.

A list of the individual video works on view can be found here.
